Warner Bros. has announced details regarding what will be included in the PlayStation 3-exclusive Knightfall downloadable content for Batman: Arkham Origins.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog, WB Games Montreal community manager Hanny Duong revealed that this bundle will include the Knightfall and Classic TV series Batman skins, as well as three Combat maps and two Predator maps.

To see the Knightfall DLC in action, check out the video below.

Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to the main storyline, launches on October 25 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are not in development. Series creator Rocksteady Studios is reportedly working on an all-new stylized Batman game.

In Batman: Arkham Origins, gamers will play as a "young, unrefined" Batman as he faces pivotal moments in his early career. Players will meet many important figures in the Batman universe for the first time in Arkham Origins.

The game also includes a series-first multiplayer mode (which will not be supported on the Wii U), developed by Brink studio Splash Damage.

A large fish informed me about the Adam West skin.

For a second there, I thought that exploding shark was pulling my leg.

I wish they let you play as these alternate skins from the start of the game. 


It's annoying that you have to beat the game to play with your alt skins in Arkham City especially. 


Then you have things like Nightwing and others only playable in the closed off "missions" and not in the open world. 


Really wish rocksteady for their next batman game (they didn't make this one) would make it a true open world and allow you to play as Nightwing OR batman or such.

Quick question: is the Knightfall Batman costume the one worn by Jean-Paul Valley in the comic after his mental breakdown?

why make it DLC??  why not just add it to the PS3 version of the game??  I don't like all this add-on stuff...I may wait for the GOTY edition!

So do we unlock these or do we have to pay............for content for a game that isn't even out yet? I already know the answer I am stunned they are pulling this.

Hopefully it'll be better than Arkham City..... Like Arkham Asylum.

So sexy. I played Arkham City from start to finish with the Batman Beyond outfit.

Oh man, I may have to buy this game just for the DLC. I absolutely loved Knightfall Batman. Hopefully we'll get the Knightsend version too.

I killed it in Arkham City with the Batman Beyond suit from start to finish.

Am I the only one that likes the outfit on the right more than the one on the left?

To turn a phrase from Hoban Washburne in regards to the Classics costume:

You see a man walking down the street in that outfit, you know he's not afraid of anything.

Those costumes are ridiculous. The Knightfall one is WAY too over the top, and the Classic TV one makes me think of the contrast of putting Dwayne Johnson in a bunny suit.

I need them both. :-P

The default skin will do just fine, thanks :)

I wonder if the skins will be available on the 360 at some point? I kind of want the tv series one because it looks ridiculous. Why did Wayne draw eyebrows on the cowl? Also it needs bat shark repellant spray or no deal.

No Frank Miller's Dark Knight Skin? :P

I wish they'd include a bunch of skins to unlock for the second playthrough. I love to play through the game in the classic 90s suit.

@Stiler I wish they would just drop the aweful challenge mode and put the effort into the world itself.

@Bluemeanie77 It'll be included with the PS3 version, as a free add-on.

@Martyr77 If it's exclusive content then it will most likely be free for those who buy new copies. Open the case and it will have a one use code inside to download them.

@THE_JOKEr_459 I think it looks better than city. Aside from the waffer thin story, I was disapointed in the general size of the world. It wasn't even the size of Florence in AC2, but the city in origins is apperently twice as big, which sounds right.

@Armyboy5 You say that as if Toy Story is bad?  If I recall correctly, it did break records at the box office.
